Patient Ratings

I have had both knees replaced and rotator cuff repair on my right shoulder by other doctors at Crystal Clinic. In Jan. 2015, Dr. Noel did a complete left shoulder replacement.  He is the BEST.  He is the best all around provider, and his PA, Jessica, is great.

I have been coming to the Crystal clinic for 10 years or more. All the doctors I have had help my situation were wonderful.  I was a patient of Dr. Bell and chose Dr. Noel for my new doctor.  This was my first visit with Dr. Noel and I was very satisfied.  All the doctors here are the best and I have recommended them to several of my friends (who have all been very happy).

Would always (and have) recommended Dr. Noel to friends and family.

Dr. Noel is one of the best! I am so glad he did my surgery. He is very kind and understanding.

I have the highest regard for Dr. Noel and his entire staff. My office visits and surgery experience were of high standard for my rotator cuff repair. I had confidence throughout the entire process. The staff was very thorough in their expertise as well as kind and compassionate to my needs.

This guy is the best... there might be equally proficient shoulder surgeons, but no one could be better. He listens and explains opinions with clarity and is a pleasure to meet with and is never rushed. Both shoulder replacements were reverse procedures and the result has been profound. Lot of nagging pain and limited range of motion before surgery, but no pain after, plus time and therapy is leading to never expected, excellent results.- Lawrence
